I am crocheting more velvet beads!!

Vegetables and Fruit garden

My son and I planted some okra and cantalope seedlings and some basil and mints in our backyard yesterday. I was not planning to get in the dirt, but it happens to be so. It was fun none the less. Well, Tommy had fun running around the yard amongst the tall beautiful purple flowers from our weeds :( Oh well, they're beautiful none the less. I just hope the chicken wire will keep the bunny out!!

Crochet Velvet Earrings in Moss Green

One of my favorite color: MOSS GREEN!! Elegantness in its own right. If there is such a thing as 'Urbanly Classy'...I think this is it!! Be careful viewing this picture guys as it has a calming effect, like the sea...even though they are green. :)

Back at home

We're back from Savannah. We had so much was sad to leave. It was a very pleasant trip...very inspiring. A very encouraging trip for an artist trying to find her way, her place in the universe such as me :)
